There is lot to play for in match no. 47 of IPL 2021 between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals. Although the reasons are quite different, the motive is the same - to get the 2 points in the bag! The Yellow Army came into this contest to keep the momentum going and seal their berth in the top two. On the other hand, Sanju Samson's side are playing to keep themselves in the play-offs race.
With so much at stake, it was expected that the players of both sides will give everything on the field. As it happened, there was a moment when the dedication shown by the players was a bit too much which resulted in a horrific collision between two players.
Scary incident during RR vs CSK match
It all happened in the 6th over of the innings. CSK had gone off to a steady start and were looking to wrap up the powerplay with a few more runs. With Mustafizur Rahman bowling, Faf du Plessis played a shot towards mid-off and sprinted for a quick single. The ball went straight to the fielder and du Plessis needed to put in a valiant effort to complete the run.
As he reached towards the non-striker's end, the South African put on a diving effort to reach the crease. However, Mustafziur was standing in his way as he was getting ready to receive the ball from the fielder. In the process, du Plessis barged into the RR pacer and both the players fell down as a result of the collision. Although it looked very scary at that instance, there was, fortunately, no damage done to either of them as the match resumed after a brief stoppage.
